Over the weekend, Norwegian chess phenom Magnus Carlsen defended his title as World Chess Champion at the 2014 World Chess Championship in Sochi, Russia. He defeated India’s Viswanathan Anand in the 11th round with a final score of 6.5- 4.5.

Carlsen started playing chess at the age of 5 and quickly turned heads worldwide. He became an International Grandmaster at the age of 13. Check out Viking’s September 2013 issue where we featured Carlsen as one of our “Young Norwegians to Watch.”
